From what I read he was running away and was tackled by a bystander when the bomb detonated. Maybe it detonated prematurely, who knows.
Who was angry because of all the rich Wall Street bankers and brokers running in the marathon. They are also saying the young 20 year old Saudi national that is under guard at the hospital and who's home was searched by the FBI is NOT a suspect and that was confirmed by the Saudi embassy. It's funny that the same foreign exchange program that brought the 19 9/11 hijackers here and was stopped by Bush and reinstated by Obama is the same program this Saudi student was here on. Maybe this is why Obama doesn't want him to be a suspect.
Because the JFK library was attacked and JFK was a democrat. After the idiot went off the air we found out the JFK library wasn't bombed at all. It's amazing how Comcast can keep this fool on the payroll as often as he puts his feet in his mouth. I used to watch his show for opposition research but I can't watch it anymore because he has gone totally crazy.
Well it absorbed all of asia's margin calls lets hope it can do the same in Europe cause if it does we may see a old fashion short squeeze.
I went today and bougt some gold and silver eagles and my broker who is a Treasury dealer said silver eagles are in short supply and my order would take at least a week to fill for a 2.50 premium over spot. He said he was hoping this drop would cause some selling but he said the opposite was the case. He was getting slammed with new requests.
Yahoo won't let me link it. Just Google The Bulliondesk. It's the London metals exchange and runs from 8 PM to 8 PM EST.
Silver dropped .70 in about 15 minutes after the Nikkei opened and now it has come back to only down .12. Gold is making a similar move. If there are no margin calls out of Europe and forced selling we may get a nice squeeze tomorrow.
Look at Japans credit default swaps, the premiums have been rising the past few days which makes you wonder if there is a default either being planned or considered. We know Japan is a economic basket case so maybe this is the end of the line and people are selling everything to preserve some wealth.
In my opinion US constitutional rights are only for US citizens. If you're a foreigner and commit a terror act you have no rights. The SCOTUS already upheld that fact that foreigners on US soil could be held as enemy combatants and denied constitutional rights in the German spy bust in WW2.
There might be something to this Japanese default stuff. The selling is coming out of Japan and there markets are down another 200 points with the yen down another 1.50 inspite of the massive QE they're doing. Something is fishy that's for sure. I believe the JCB announced QE just so their investors could get out of their positions at the top before a default but where are they putting their money withe everything getting sold? I know they have been putting it in US equities but even they are about to tank and selling off.
So we have a 20 year old Saudi national here on a student visa that built and planted at least 4 bombs and Obama doesn't feel comfortable calling it a act of terrorism? No way this guy acted alone!
#$%$ is up with this guy anyway? The Fort Hood shooting was work place violence and he was quick to say Benghazi wasn't terrorism. It's almost like he has a soft spot in his heart for Islamic terrorists that kill Americans.
I went and bought some more physical gold and silver today. I only bought half of what I wanted to buy just in case it goes down some more. What about you, are you holding your longs or shorting?
I haven't seen those snails yet but when I do I'll be selling them to you snooty libs as escargot.
What is this like 6? At least Bush took action after the first preventing any further attacks. We spend $86B a year for the DHS for what? At the very least Obama should ask for Napalatono and Clappers resignations over their incompetence.
Which one for the commodities particulary gold and silver?
Look at the difference in silver. Physical silver is selling for a $5 premium per ounce to paper spot at APMEX. Physical gold the last I checked was about $80 over paper spot. I think silver may be shaping up to be the better buy.
I thought so too but that's not it. It's coming out of Asia and there are rumors floating that Japan is on the verge of economic collapse. Look at the yen, the Nikkei, and the Japanese long bonds, all are tanking. My guess is they are liquidating all commodities that are yen denomiinated to get their money out now. It should be bullish for US equities if we end up being the safe haven. I think this is as good a place as any to start averaging into gold and better yet silver but buy physical as their prices are no longer dropping like the paper is.
A former partner of George Soros has liquidated everything he had in Japan and said it's just a matter of time now before it collapses. The Nikkei is down the most since the BOJ began easing, the yen is down 1.36 pushing the dollar higher, and they're dumping Japanese bonds like crazy. US futures are tanking and all commodities are getting hammered. I'm glad I got out of everything last week because if Japan goes there's no telling what's going to happen here. My guess is this is what was driving our equities higher the past few weeks in the face of all the bad economic data, they were front running Japans economic demise.
